Here are over six thousand A to Z entries, ranging from long articles to biographies to brief identifications. Readers can find information on virtually any aspect of the classical world -- athletics, bee-keeping, botany, magic, Roman law, philosophy, religious rites, postal service, slavery, navigation, and the reckoning of time. And with the OCD on CD-ROM, readers can find this information in seconds.
Both the thousand-page volume and the CD-ROM are available as a package, with the CD included in a sleeve in the inside back cover of the book. Together they make an unparalleled resource for anyone interested in Greece or Rome.
